I found a great B&B in Harlingen, on the coast of Holland. The owners Jouke & Karin have really looked after me, recommending a good restaurant last night and just chatting in general. They have informed the local press about my trip, so I now have my first press conference booked in!
Harlingen itself is a nice quiet town with plenty to sea (pun intended!). Lots of wooden sailing boats in the harbour and on the canals, Harlingen will be host to a huge tall ship regatta in 2018. More tall ships than Amsterdam, which is important apparently!
I’ve just realised that this is my first B&B of the trip. I told Jouke it was the best of the whole trip! In fairness though, I’ve stayed in a few other B&Bs in the past – and I have to say his place is excellent.
